The City of Ottawa has initiated a functional planning study to improve connectivity between the Osgoode Pathway, renamed the Doug Thompson Pathway, and Manotick Village. The study primarily focuses on two segments; (i) Mitch Owens Road and Dozois Road between River Rd. and Longshadow St., and (ii) Rideau Forest neighbourhood between St. Mark’s School and the Doug Thompson Pathway.

Review and comment on the functional design 

Mitch Owens Road: The City proposes to implement enhanced paved shoulders on Mitch Owens Road between River Road and Dozois Road.  Along the frontage of George Nelms Park and St Marks Catholic School a pathway is proposed. These would be shared facilities for use by residents both on foot and on bike.

Rideau Forest Neighbourhood Route: For the eastern segment of the project the link follows local streets and an existing off-road pathway through the Rideau Forest Neighbourhood.  Wayfinding signage is provided, and pavement markings indicate sharing of the road. The segment of Gough Road between Dutchess Crescent and the Doug Thompson pathway is proposed to be widened to include paved shoulders.
